This realm ruled by the vicious emperor Shao Kahn came to be known as the Outworld. The wise men knew that travel between the dark realm and Earth would someday be possible if the conditions were right – those conditions being the unbalancing of the Furies, negative and positive forces which keep our unstable universe from collapsing onto itself. Knowing that the imminent Outworld invasion would prove too much for Earth, the wise men appealed to the Elder Gods. It was for this reason the Elder Gods created the tournament called Mortal Kombat. Through this contest, we protect not only the safety of the realm, but the existence of our souls. Evil Reborn: For centuries, Earth has used Mortal Kombat to defend itself against Shao Kahn. But Kahn becomes frustrated by failed attempts at taking Earth through tournament battle. He decides to enact a plan which began almost 10,000 years ago. It was a time when Kahn had a queen. Her name was Sindel, and her early death was unexpected. Conquest: Kahn’s shadow priests, led by the sorcerer Shang Tsung, would make it so Sindel’s spirit would someday be reborn – not in the Earth realm itself. This unholy act gives Shao Kahn the power to step through the dimensional gates and reclaim his queen, thus enabling him to finally seize the Earth. Shao Kahn begins to strip the planet of all human life. He claims every soul as his own. Slowly the Earth begins to transform into part of the Outworld itself. But there are human souls which Shao Kahn cannot take. These souls belong to the warriors chosen to represent Earth in a new Mortal Kombat. The warriors are scattered throughout the planet and Kahn sends an army of fierce Outworld warriors to find and eliminate them. Some fo Earth’s warriors survive the attacks. Most do not. But the remaining few hold the one chance at saving all of humankind… _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | | | Controls | |_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _| _______________________ /Three-button controller_______________________________________________ Up – Jump Down – Crouch Left or Right – move around A button – Low punch B button – Block C button – Low kick Start – Run A + B – High punch B + C – High Kick Foward + A – Throw (close range ; some characters cannot throw) Back + C – Leg Sweep Back + B + C – Roundhouse Kick _____________________ /Six-button controller_________________________________________________ Up – Jump Down – Crouch Left or Right – move around A button – Low punch B button – Block C button – Low kick X button – High punch Y button – Run Z button – High kick Foward + A – Throw (close range ; some characters cannot throw) Back + C – Leg Sweep Back + Z – Roundhouse Kick _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | | | Charactor Info | |_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _| Cyrax: Cyrax is unit LK-4D4, the second of three prototype cyber-ninjas built by the Lin Kuei. Like his counterpart Sektor, his last programmed mission is to find and terminate the rogue ninja, Sub-Zero. Without a sould, Cyrax goes undetected by Shao Kahn. He remains a possible threat against Kahn’s occupation of Earth. Jax: After failing to convince his superiors and the U.S. government of the coming Outworld menace, and despite the added weight of Sonya’s witness, Jax begins to covertly prepare for future battles with Shao Kahn’s minions. He outfits both his arms with indestructible bionic attachments. Kabal: As a chosen warrior, his true identity is the ultimate mystery. It is believed that he is the survivor of a vicious squads. As a result, he is now grotesquely scarred and kept alive by artificial respirators and a rage for ending Shao Kahn’s conquest. Before invasion, Kabal lived a life of crime. He was once a member of the Black Dragon alongside Kano. Kano: Thought to be dead after the first tournament, Kano is found alive in the Outworld. He once again escapes capture by Lt. Sonya Blade. Before the actual Outworld invasion, Kano manages to convince Shao Kahn to spare his soul. Kahn needs someone to teach his warriors how to use the scientifically advanced weapons of Earth, and Kano is the man to do it. Kung Lao: After the destruction of his Shaolin temple and the loss of his brother monks, Kung Lao plans to reform his old group, The White Lotus Society. His plan comes to a halt when Shao Kahn begins his invasion of Earth. As a chosen warrior, Kung Lao must use his greatest fighting skills to bring down Shao Kahn’s reign of terror. Liu Kang: After the Outworld invasion, Liu Kang finds himself the prime target of Kahn’s extermination squads. He is the Shaolin champion and his thwarted Shao Kahn’s schemes in the past by winning the last Mortal Kombat. Of all the humans, Liu Kang poses the greatest threat to Shao Kahn’s rule over the Earth Realm. Nightwolf: He worked as a historian and preserver of his people’s culture. When Shao Kahn’s portal opens over North America, Nightwolf uses his knowledge and the magic of his shaman to protect his tribe’s sacred land. Kahn’s power cannot penetrate this area of Earth. It quickly becomes a dangerous threat to Shao Kahn’s rule. Sektor: Sektor is actually the code name for unit LK-9T9 – the first of three prototype cybernetic ninjas built by the Lin Kuei. Sektor was once a Kuei. He volunteered for automation because of his strong loyalty for the clan. More machine than man, Sektor survived the Outworld invasion – he has no soul for Shao Kahn to take. Shang Tsung: As Shao Kahn’s lead sorcerer, Shang Tsung fell out of favor with his emperor after falling to win the Earth through tournament battle. But the ever scheming and often traitorous wizard is instrumental in Kahn’s conquest of the Earth Realm. He has now been granted more power than ever. Also, Shang Tsung can turn into any other person that he wants to. Sheeva: She was enlisted by Shao Kahn as Queen Sindel’s personal protecter. But Sheeva becomes suspicious of Shao Kahn’s loyalty toward her race -the Shokan- when he places Motaro as the leader of his extermination squads. On the Outworld Montaro’s race of Centaurians have always been the natural enemy of the Shokan. Sindel: She ruled the Out world at Shao Kahn’s side as his queen 10,000 years ago. Now she is reborn on Earth. Key to Kahn’s occupation of Earth, her evil intentions are every match for his tyranny. Unknown to Sindel, her true king was named Jerrod. They had a daughter named Kitana and once ruled a realm called Edenia – before Kahn snatched in away and murded Jerrod. Kahn forced an unwilling Sindel to be his queen and took Kitana as his own daughter. Sonya Blade: She disappeared after the first Mortal Kombat, but was later rescued from the Outworld by Jax, who entered the tournament to free her. After returning to Earth through the dimesional gate she and Jax try to warn the U.S. government of the Outworld menace. Lacking proof, they can only watch helplessly as Shao Kahn begins his invasion. Stryker: When the Outworld portal opens over a large city in North America, panic and chaos rage out of control. Kurtis Stryker was the leader of a riot control brigade when Kahn began his unholy task of taking souls of every human. As a chosen warrior, Stryker finds himself the lone survivor of a city populated by millions. Sub-Zero: The younger brother of the original returns – now unmasked. Double-crossed by his own ninja clan, he leaves and is marked for assassination for breaking sacred codes of honor. Unlike the ninja of old, his pursuers are automated machines. As a chosen warrior, Sub-Zero must not only defend against the Outworld, but also elude his soulless assassins. Before automation, Smoke and Sub-Zero were allies. Smoke: Smoke is unit LK-7T2, the third prototype cyber-ninja. Smoke was captured when he and Sub-Zero tried to escape the Lin Kuei’s automation process. Smoke is now a cyborg assassin with a mission to find and kill his old partner. His memories are stripped away, leaving behind an emotionless killer. However, Sub-Zero believes that somewhere i nthis machine is a human soul trying to escape. (Secret Character) Motaro: In the realm of the Outworld, Montaro’s race of Centaurians has long since come into conflict with the Shokan. When Shao Kahn formed special extermination squads to eliminate the Chosen Warriors of Earth, Motaro was appointed to head this elite group of Savage Warriors. He is a half-man/half-horse with a steel tail. (Unplayable Character) Shao Kahn: Many decades ago, Shao Kahn rose to power in the Outworld, usurping the realm from Kitana’s parents and taking Queen Sindel for his bride. But she died. Now, centuries later, Sindel is reborn. And since Shang Tsung failed to win the Earth Realm through Mortal Kombat I and II, her rebirth is the means by which Kahn will finally seize the planet forever unless… (Unplayable Character)
